This is a set of Sèvres porcelain vessel which is produced in 18th century with the trade mark of the Sèvres Porcelain Factory. The company logo is formed by two ‘L’s and two ‘C’s, the Sèvres Porcelain year cyphers began with and ‘A’ in 1753 and continues until ‘Z’. There is a “L” in the middle of the logo which showed that it is a was produced in 1764.

There are scenes of country life and fishing decorated on the led, the bowl and the plate. These scenes are exquisitely used motifs for the Rococo style of ornamentation. The handles of the lid and bowl are in twisted leaves shape. Decorative arts at that time had curvilinear, asymmetrical shapes and naturalistic and exotic ornament.

This is a very unique set of porcelain vessels with excellent craftmanship. They are ornated with oriental patterns and highlighted every edge with glided gold. One should take a closer look of the details of this precious piece, transparent red glass powder is glazed on very tiny and thin metal plates on the surface of the porcelain to imitated ruby beads, and the milky white dots are perhaps imitation of pearls. - (RL.1172)
